About this Property

In one of West Penwith's most spectacular clifftop positions, surrounded by granite and heather and within yards of the cove at Porthgwarra and Gwennap Head with jaw dropping views of the ocean, Hellas Point and the Longships Lighthouse.

Originally built as a coastguards cottage and approached over a private road, this three bedroomed house also comes with a garage and good sized gardens. Its main feature is undoubtedly the sensational location, making this a dream home for many people.

Please contact Whitlocks to arrange your viewing.


Porthgwarra is a beautiful coastal hamlet situated between Porthcurno, home of the famous cliff side Minack Theatre, and Land's End. It has small sandy cove which featured in a number of scenes in the long running television series Poldark. It is popular with birdwatchers, as the area attracts many rare species and walkers, as the south west coastal path passes through it.
